About this design:

I’m still entranced with these girls. This one is a matte finish- love it! Her name came with her! I was going to name her Juanita after Barney Fife’s girl at the diner😊


Touch of glass by Brenda Miller cabochon. It’s 1 1/2 inches. 8/0, 11/0’s and 15/0’s. My bail is herringbone stitch ( does it look right?). Leather cord and a little gemstone and crystal chain.

    Robin – I love your cowgirl. The colors are great. I especially love the round seed beads you used for the bezel – they give it a very organic look. The leather cord and leather on the back are perfect. And that cab with the cacti is just so cute. Herringbone bail looks great! What a fun necklace.

    Love this! The picasso seed beads on the bezel create a rustic feel that looks great with your western gal. The stitched bail is very impressive too. I really like how you added the leather to the chain–perfect punch for the theme. Great vision carried through the whole piece. Now let’s grab a Margarita & enjoy!

    Loving your new cowgirl. You chose such great materials to surround her and for her to safely hang from.

    How many of these girls do you have? Because I never get tired of seeing what you do with them. Juanita is a perfect name for her. Great bezeling skills I might add.

    This is great! I didn’t realize she was so tiny. It’s so cool she’s even wearing a necklace. Everything about your design enhances the focal. I especially like the way you made the bail. The addition of leather is a wonderful addition to your design.
